I working on a php project where a pdf has to be shown in div container .
I have googled around this and on this forum also.

Whether a person's browser will show a PDF embedded within a page depends on their browser and plug-in settings. In my experience, the majority of people have it set so that PDFs launch Adobe Reader as a separate application, rather than as a plug-in within the browser, meaning that you can't achieve what you're after for those people.
Well... While Stevie D is correct here, you COULD run some PDF libs to convert to jpegs on the fly
i used iframe but this need pdf plug-in on the browser,so i have used google doc viewer to show pdf content.
<iframe src="http://docs.google.com/gview?url=http://norefresh.thesparxitsolutions.com/rajeev_ranjan/filename.pdf&embedded=true" style="width:600px; height:500px;" frameborder="0"></iframe>
If the browser supports displaying PDFs in the browser then the following is the simplest solution:
<div><img src="something.pdf" alt="unfortunately your browser doesn't display PDF's"></div>
Again it needs pdf plug-in.
is there any third party tool to show pdf on the site like we see on other sites like scribd.
A PDF is never the original source - if you want to display in the web page without needing a PDF prugin then it is best to convert the original source into a different web supported format.
Ok. i will try that.
